A journey to remember

Every Girl Would Love to Have Her Fairy Tale

Posted on: May 15, 2016


IMG_8234It’s all started while I was copying the pictures of my last vacation to Disneyland. A Cinderella Movie just started playing at HBO and it got me thinking… Deep in their heart, all girls I know are dreaming of a fairy tale in their own life. All girls, including myself.

I know that people know me as a modern female ‘warrior’. I fight hard for my dreams and for everything that I believe is right. I don’t give up easily, I stand up even higher after I fall. And as many of you know, I’m never afraid to speak up my mind. So yes, I believe it’s true that I’m a warrior on my own.

But did you know? Once upon a time, I was just an ordinary little girl who was falling for fairy tales. Everytime I read them in my books or watched them on TV, I smiled alone and told myself that someday I would meet my prince charming too. He would come to rescue me and we would live happily ever after. A happy ending; me and him against the world.

Many years have passed me by and I have survived (even more that just survive I would say) so many tough battles in my life, even though I am all alone. With that being said, does it mean that I no longer need my prince charming to rescue me?

Rescue me? You’re kidding me! Why would I need to be rescued from this amazing life I already have? 😉 But seriously… I no longer think that I need to be rescued. All that I need right now is just a right person who is willing to fight the battles to come, together with me; just me and him against the world.

As a grown up, I’ve come to learn that life is not as easy as a fairy tale. Real life is a battlefield, a never ending one. One ending is always just another beginning. That’s why to me, as long as I can find someone who stays with me to conquer it all, then it would be all that I need. It would be nice if he comes with flowers, sweet surprises, and all sweet things to make me smile alone when I think of him. He doesn’t need to be perfect, he only needs to be the very best of him, loves me, and fights for me sincerely.

Just by that, I would already have my happy ending in my love story. And that’s my friend, my kind of fairy tale that I would love to have.

Wish you all a lovely week ahead!

I used to read a quote written by my former lecture saying that even a bad decision would always be much better than no decision at all. It reminded me of the decisions I put on hold and I asked myself, “What prevents me from making all those decisions?” I could instantly listed down many personal reasons that didn’t even sound good to myself. So there I made a couple of decisions; the good ones and the bad ones, and apparently it was so true: even bad decision was still better than no decision at all. First of all, it helped me to move on. I no longer waited for this and that; I made decisions and I started to make the actions. It also gave me a peace of mind knowing that I owed nothing to anyone, not even to myself. And most importantly, all those decisions made me learn, notably the bad ones. It’s not that I intentionally made a bad one, but well, how did I know my decision was bad until I gave it a try? Ever since the day I decided to stop putting my decisions on hold, my life felt a lot lighter and I have never been more proud of myself. Other people might not be happy with my decisions, but I only do what I’ve got to do and they can’t blame me for having courage to do the things they’re not willing to do. If it holds me back and nobody wants to make the call, then let me do the honor. It’s actually that simple, and again, it sets me free.
My biggest career goal is always running my own business. I have been an entrepreneur even since I was a seven years old. I was never hesitate everytime I saw an opportunity to earn some cash to buy toys and comic books. Graduating from college and starting my first corporate job has stopped me from doing my own business. I was too busy to do something else beside my main job. I tried to run a small jewelry business but then I got bored. I came to learn that if I want to start a business, I have to do something bigger. But of course, a bigger scale own business will also require a bigger effort! The comfort of corporate job made me decide to postpone starting a new business until at some point, it was no longer comforting to me. I still remember one night I went home feeling extremely upset with my boss and I just told myself, “I can’t do this forever. I can do much better than working for a jerk.” Right at that moment, I decided to start my biggest dream: starting my own business. Not so long after that, @thelenstory was born.
There is this one little secret about @thelenstory. There was one particular guy who made me fall deeper with photography. He was so talented he could make an old dirty lamp look beautifully glow in his pictures. I still remember that day on a boat, he took pictures of me and he smiled behind his lens. That kind of smile that made me feel the prettiest girl on earth. I didn’t know why but I just loved seeing this guy holding his camera. I even still loved it when he took pictures of me with his grumpy face! At the end of the day, The Lens Story is way more than just a girl who fell in love. The ups and downs, and all lifetime savings that I’ve spent have been the greatest leap of faith I’ve ever taken in my entire life. That one guy from my past was just a starting point. He was my inspiration, he made me believe that there were many hidden talents like him out there and I would be more than happy to help them start their professional career in photography. That was the very beginning story on how my start-up was born, and to me, that will always be one of my favorite stories to tell.
